NIGHT SWEATS and cannabis studies completed


Night sweats are episodes of night-time sweating that soak your nightclothes or bedding and are related to some underlying cause.

You may occasionally awaken after perspiring excessively, particularly if you are sleeping under too many blankets or if your bedroom is too warm.

These episodes are usually not labelled as night sweats and, although uncomfortable, typically aren't a sign of a medical problem.
